2. That weird-shaped pot. “No way! I’m not doing that!” If you’ve ever found yourself grimacing at the thought of using a neti pot, you may want to reconsider. Filling the little pot with a saline solution and flushing it through your nostrils is an increasingly popular way of dealing with allergies naturally. Plus, research shows it’s just as effective as medicine, without all the side effects. And while it may look like you’re snorting liquid from a bullhorn, many doctors say it’s worth the initially awkward sensation. "Neti pots and sinus saline rinse are becoming a standard treatment for patients with allergies and sinus disease. No question they are well received by many allergists, ear, nose, and throat doctors, and others who treat allergies," says Clifford Bassett, MD, a fellow of the ACAAI.
